What is Sad Hill Unearthed?

Sad Hill Unearthed is a full length documentary about the amazing story behind one of the most important locations in film history. We explore the dreams and motivations behind the fans but also the transformation of art, music and film in a substitute for religion.
In 1966 the Spanish Army built a huge cemetery with over 5000 graves at Mirandilla Valley in Burgos for the final sequence in the film "The Good the Bad and the Ugly". After the shooting, the whole place was left behind and for 49 years, nature covered every tomb.
In October 2015 a group of film fans decided to start digging... and under 3 inches of ground they found the original paved circle. For months, people from all around Europe travelled to Sad Hill to unearth and rebuild the place. We have been filming the process... even before they started!

This documentary is on Netflix. I stumbled across it today. I highly recommend it to fans of the film. Clint appears a couple of times talking about the making of the film. Including the infamous blowing up the bridge fiasco.

5/5.

I only found it by accident. I started typing Classics, into the search engine and after CL, Clint Eastwood popped up and the first title was this. 8)

I watched it last night and did enjoy it. And while working on some stuff today, I even found myself looking up some Morricone scores to listen to. :D

Enjoyed watching this film, although gutted to have missed being there (I only discovered GBU earlier this year). Am determined to take a trip to Sad Hill some time in the next 18 months or so and see the place for myself. Hoping thereíll be something going on there for the 60th anniversary, although thatís a fair way off right now!
